I bought a few of these in the Spring of 2018 to see how they would perform. Their label described them as annuals, but they lived through a few light freezes here in the Houston area and are performing like perennials. They are still thriving and are blooming profusely in the flower beds, although they are a little stressed from our extreme SE Texas heat (aren't we all!).. They look like small shrubs (~20" H and 15" wide). The container plants are feeling our Houston heat more than the ones growing in the beds. With a little attention this weekend, I'm sure they'll revive. If they survive August & September, they will be outstanding in October. Thanks for developing such a carefree, low-maintenance, colorful plant! My favorite is the dark pink. I will start growing them from seed (I just ordered some from Park's) and will use them to fill in the bare, hot spots around the gardens. They will be especially lovely with caladiums in their color shades (another carefree, colorful plant that does well here). They are also stunning paired with the chartreuse sweet potato vine (basket & pots) and Cora vincas, and beside the small chartreuse shrub, Gold Mound Duranta. The purple/blue goes with everything. The purple is especially striking beside the small, heat-loving red pentas and the lemon-yellow Happy Returns daylily (of the dwarf Stella de Oro family). All of these together make a low, pruning-free" hedge" of color across the front of my house. Their form is a pleasant contrast to the bushier plants mentioned. They stand out beautifully in the beds without getting lost in the mix. I give them a rating of 5*s for excellence. They will become a staple in my yard.

The cascading habit of this new Angelface® Angelonia is perfectly suited for hanging baskets and combinations. The plants have height on the top of the pot, but then cascade over the edge as well. In containers it will function as both a filler and spiller.

Self-cleaning, no dead-heading necessary.
Angelonia are heat-loving plants that will grow most vigorously and bloom best when the heat is on. They are plants best planted in mid-spring or later, since they won't really grow until the temperatures warm up. Angelonia will tolerate wet feet and a fair amount of drought. The plants are easy care with no deadheading needed. A bit of fertilizer or some compost in a garden bed is usually all that is needed for these plants to thrive. Due to their heat-loving nature they are one of the plants that can be planted even during the heat of mid-summer.
Don't forget that Angelface are great long lasting cut flowers with a slight grape soda fragrance. Try some in a flower arrangement this year and see for yourself!
An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.Angelface® Cascade Pink Angelonia hybrid 'ANCASPI' USPP 31, Can 6,279
